Men’s Formal Wear Guide

Men’s formal wear can be tough to master. What’s the difference between things like white tie and black tie? How do you know when you should wear a cummerbund? How do you know what’s appropriate for your age? 

It’s a difficult thing to figure out, especially since most guys only wear their formal attire once or twice a year. Certainly, it adds up – most guys will don a tux about 100 times in their life. But how do you ever know what’s appropriate for any given occasion?

How to Determine Fit in Custom Blazers and Trousers

Men's Blazer
One of the most important components of any custom wardrobe is establishing a proper fit. 

The fit of a garment helps to establish not only the quality of the garment as a whole, but your overall understanding of style and how to create a fabulous style persona. 

Proper fit does not just happen naturally, fit happens through a series of decisions designed to create the end result of a fabulous fit.

Choosing the Right Fabric for Your Custom Suit

One of the most important parts of the design process revolves around the selection of the fabric for your custom suit. 

Your fabric selection is the foundation of the entire garment. 

The quality of the fabric makes a statement about your overall style persona. The higher the fabric quality of the garment, the more stylish you will appear. 

People equate the quality of the fabric in the garment that you are wearing with your overall status in society. 

Your custom suit will be a symbol of status and prestige and must therefore have a fabric content that reflects that.

Exquisite Made to Measure Plus Size Clothing

Plus Size Clothing
Good fitting, quality plus size suits can be difficult to find, especially in places that sell entire suits rather than separate pieces.  

Studies have determined that there are at least seven different general body shapes for women, as opposed to the idea of an hourglass figure, which was the main presumption in creating women’s clothing.  

Off the peg items fail to take into account the differences and size and shape, and use generic blueprints with an assumption that all proportions will be larger.

This is often not the case, and generally merely creates clothing for a larger hourglass form, which can leave people with ill-fitting clothes, which in turn can have a detrimental impact on confidence and self esteem.  Curves can also be attributed to the modern day practices of surgery and implants, meaning that shapes are artificially altered and definitely will not therefore conform to a supposed ideal model.

You Need a Custom Tuxedo

Most men won’t ever consider ordering a custom tuxedo an important task. They’re satisfied with stopping by the local rental shop, picking something off the peg, and having the tailor temporarily alter it to their measurements.

It will look alright, and it will definitely garnish some compliments at the wedding. But as refined gentlemen, you’re not fishing for compliments. You don’t dress your best so that others will bolster your ego.

You dress as well as possible because you understand that your appearance tells the world who you are.

You also know that it’s the finer details that make the difference. So doesn’t it make sense to have a custom tuxedo, with flawless fit and perfect details for your special event?

Why a Store Bought Shirt Can’t Compare to a Men’s Bespoke Shirt

Bespoke Shirt (@)
Have you ever bought a men’s bespoke shirt

If so, then you already know how much better they fit than the pieces you can buy at the local department store. 

This isn’t to imply that you can’t find a great deal on a shirt that fits you well enough. 

But if you want to look your best, you need to get the best.

And the simple fact is, a men’s bespoke shirt is, by far, the best choice you could ever make when it comes to your wardrobe.

A Custom Topcoat Can Make the Look

Topcoat (@)
While any man with experience staying stylish will tell you that a custom topcoat is the only way to go, there are plenty of guys out there who might think they can save a buck or two by picking one up at the local department store.

Sure, Neiman-Marcus, Nordstrom, and even J.C. Penny may occasionally have some nice pieces. But when you’re out there shopping for the piece that’s going to complete your suit, how can you be absolutely positive that it’s going to mesh well with the rest of your wardrobe?

A custom topcoat can make you stand out, with a look that subtly indicates your sophistication, intelligence, and attention to detail. The wrong topcoat can make even the best dressed man look like a mismatched ignoramus trying to put on a show.

Learning how to avoid that appearance is essential, and it all really starts with ordering a custom topcoat.
